Re: Basically it's Monday

I forgot to admire the yarn, Janine. It is lovely!
Ugh Beth that sucks. I would just go to the dollar store. And for sure wait until after Christmas.
This year to keep gifts in check I am doing the "Something you want, something you need, something to wear something to read" gift theme. I got Bella a saddle pad that is super cool at the show. I am going to call it something she "needs" we don't own any, and we are getting the horse trained to ride too.

Re: Basically it's Monday

I'm always broke right after christmas, so that's probably not going to help either. I need to find a way to make some extra money over the winter. And I would just get dollar store ****, but it has to be a specific theme and everything has to be super nice and classy to impress people :eyeroll:

Re: Basically it's Monday

I'm going to see if we can have it in my uncle's huge basement, which is where my baby shower was, that way I can save at least $50 by not having to rent someplace to have it.

Re: Basically it's Monday

I've got the boys gifts planned out, and half purchased, I need to find stuff for our parents, see what names we draw for siblings, and get something found for matt. and then have enough money for matt to get something for me.

yarn.

bethann. I think dollar store stuff can look classy if done right.

I think I may make pancakes for dinner. I have meatballs and butter noodles on the meal plan but I need pancakes for the freezer.

IDK why the power went out Kari. It very lightly rained, not a huge storm by any means. But restoring power here must be a huge issue since 1) everyone has generators and 2) the burger king here makes a point to advertise they have a backup generator and thus never lose power.

I have no clue about Xmas. Mom has already bought them a karioki machine, a tent, and 39 clues book series. She makes it challenging for us and Santa every year.

Sorry Beth. I've no clue about that. We didn't have a wedding shower/baby shower/engagement party/anything at all.

I think if she made the effort for you then you need to do it for her.
